With quasi-scientific experiments, and through his sculptures, he invents modes of reproducing images and forms that stem from perception - and cognition - related traps and from hallucinations.

To celebrate 30 years of unfailing support for artists from Rhône-Alpes, the region’s visual arts information centre (MAPRA) wanted to stage a network of eight exhibitions reflecting the spirit of its work across the creative spectrum and in all kinds of venues and locations around the region.
Twenty young artists active in Rhône-Alpes are invited to showwork at three sites: a factory (Novaciéries in Saint-Chamond), a Le Corbusier-designed church (Eglise Saint-Pierre in Firminy) and a museum (Greater Saint-EtienneMuseum of Modern Art) to kindle a dialogue between architecture, usage, and collective and individual memories.
